Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Heads Up: Chael Sonnen’s Suspension Was Lifted Today

(Somebody needs to break the news to Chael that they dissolved the WEC while he was away.)

Chael Sonnen celebrated the end of his suspension by the California State Athletic Commission today by doing his other favorite thing…talking smack on Twitter.

The beleaguered UFC middleweight posted the message above early Wednesday morning.

Expect a big announcement soon by the UFC on where and when Sonnen will be fighting next, which is somewhat ironic considering Nate Marquardt was let go under similar circumstances. Sure, Nate killed the main event because of his indiscretions, but had Chael beaten Anderson, the result of the bout would have been changed to a no-contest and the belt would have been returned to “The Spider,” in which case he may well have suffered the wrath of UFC president Dana White’s itchy Twitter trigger finger much like Marquardt did. Lucky for Chael, he dodged that bullet via lack of triangle defense.

Apparently testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is covered by the majority of athletic commissions’ therapeutic use exemption policies, which means that as long as he remains within the acceptable level range, Sonnen should have no problem fighting for any commission, except maybe two.

The California State Athletic Commission has made it clear that they are not impressed with how he handled his case — namely how he falsely stated during his hearing that he was told by Nevada State Athletic Commission director Keith Kizer that he shouldn’t have to ever mention his TRT in pre-fight screening forms again because NSAC had record of his condition. Kizer later refuted the statement, claiming to have never spoken to Sonnen, let alone about his hypogonadism (which would have been an awkward convo to walk in on). As a result of his lying under oath and based on his recent money laundering charges, CSAC extended Sonnen’s suspension to the maximum term, which was a step up from it’s original “indefinite” one.

It looks like Kizer’s commission may not just rubber-stamp Sonnen’s license application either.

During an interview he did with TapouT’s Mike Straka yesterday, he explained that anyone ever caught for performance enhancing drug use would never be given a TUE in Nevada.

Whether or not Sonnen’s undisclosed T use is in fact classified as PED use is a matter of perception, but considering the fact that he put words into Kizer’s mouth that he never said, there’s a good chance they are going to look long and hard at that one clause when considering his application.

There’s always Brazil, that is if he doesn’t mind dodging errant bottles and being whipped by Banana tree branches on his way to the Octagon.

Defending what?
intercept440- June 29, 2011 at 10:22 pm
also stockton rules would allow weapons like brass knucks and knives... ive siad it before and ill say it again.. stockton only produces hoodrats.. and the occasional subhuman...

peace out bitches im going to get hammered and fuck some sluts
intercept440- June 29, 2011 at 10:20 pm
hand raised = win anything less is a loss 25-10 record not very becoming, although his last few fights have been awesome... its all cuase of ped's and his hypergonadism lack of testoerone... my advice would be he jacks off less. that might cure his small ball syndrome.... he is a funny mutherfucker. but he is an asshole that much is fact....

I don't give a fuck about Stockton as far as the location is concerned;


Chael Sonnen has won basically every fight he's been in if we're calling Stockton rules.
joshuan29- June 29, 2011 at 2:57 pm
Yeah, I'd say if they fought tommorow Wandy stands no chance against Sonnen. "Stockton Rules Bitch" indeed. I am a fan of the Skrap Pack, and Ceasar Gracie. I am also a fan of Chael Sonnen. But he is an asshole, as is Stockton to America. Also, Barnett, shitty of a fella as he is, is still an awesome fighter who, I believe could make a bunch of noise in the UFC right now.
intercept440- June 29, 2011 at 2:30 pm

no homie stockton sucks, the 209 only produces nasty hoodrats.
intercept440- June 29, 2011 at 2:29 pm
chael is funny, in an insane way.
he is however still cunty
Fatty McDickbutts- June 29, 2011 at 2:28 pm
4. Wandy would get fuckin' prison raped by Chael.

Okay motherfuckers. I see a lot of hate-speech towards Lord Chael, allow me to address these issues:

1. Nate Marquardt fanboy crybabies: Fuck you, Marquardt has been busted TWICE. Chael's TRT levels were completely normal (or he wouldn't have gotten to fight) when he smashed Anderson's bitchass, his therapy was no mystery to anyone, he got suspended for mentioning that fuckin' clown Kieth "the bitch" Kizer. ON TOP OF ALL OF THAT - Chael's a better fighter than Nate, and definitely more of an asset to Dana White further solidifying his place over Nate.

2. Fuck you

3. Josh Barnett isn't half as amazing as Chael. Barnett, granted, is quite cool though. Barnett could maybe do Chael's laundry or something.

Nice Tweet from Chael above as well. Isn't this clown supposed to be helping Okami train for a fight for the Middleweight Championship Belt??!?? I know Spider doesn't give two shits what this loser steroid case thinks, but Okami must be all WTF tiny balls?

@Pen Fifteen
I mean that only in regards to Dana White. Chael cheated, got caught, lied about it and DW goes gives us the whole "boo hoo, what am I supposed to do? These guys are trying to make a living" routine that he says every time a guy gets caught and someone asks Dana what he's gonna do about it. Then Marquardt does almost the exact same thing, except this time he was caught before the fight could take place and he is immediately fired. The only difference between the two is money. Nate cost the UFC money by getting caught beforehand, and DW gets dollar signs in his eyes every time he thinks about a possible Chael/Anderson rematch. That's why I say he's a hypocrite for trying to feed us a bunch of bullshit that he's doing his best to get PEDs out of the sport. The only reason he initiated drug-testing in the first place was because he knew that he could make more money if MMA appeared more legitimate. Trust me, if he thought for a second he could make more money as he does now with a bunch of juiced up meathead fighters he would do it.

You know that Chael is a shitty version of what Josh Barnett was to MMA quite a long time ago now. I remember when Josh beat Nog on a shaky decision and he gained much popularity, he tested positive for steroids(like Chael), talks a ton of smack(like Chael) etc...
I think in a few years and a few more positive tests, Chael will be the black sheep of MMA and most will ever wonder what they saw in this guy.
Trash talk works for winners who end fights, not for losers who attempt to GnP but end up hugging their way to decision wins.
TheHulkSmash- June 29, 2011 at 12:05 pm
I don't get it. He doesn't have a title to defend, does he?

Chael Sonnen: He's a piece of shit. He's actually worse than a piece of shit, more like a piece of dogshit that I stepped on that gets between my toes, is goey, and stinks to high heaven. But strangley, just like when I step in a terrible pile of dogshit, he makes me laugh. I mean, the guy has a 25-10 record, yet comes out and says "I've won every minute of every round of every fight I've ever been in! Show me where I've ever lost a fight." Thats pure gold! He's such a low down dirty cheating snake of an asshole! But a loveable and comical asshole, not unlike Billy Bob Thornton or Lewis Black.

Chael has also been suspended for over a year, during which time his "employment" with the UFC was completely nominal. At least Marquardt will be able to make a buck in the mean time, and I'd be shocked if he isn't back in the UFC by this time next year.
danomite- June 29, 2011 at 11:40 am
the fact that Chael gets to keep his job in the UFC after using hormone therapy (while lying about it) and Nate gets fired for doing the same exact thing (minus the lying) isn't irony, it's hypocrisy.

@Rampage Chael also lost to Filho when the strap was on the line and only beat him once Paulo was off the deep end. He lost *every* match people cared about.

You take that back RwilsonR, Mayhem is the only thing that can save TUF next season.
Machiavelli- June 29, 2011 at 11:10 am
Who has Chael beaten, Marquardt?! He's not even in the UFC anymore...
RwilsonR- June 29, 2011 at 11:00 am
I hope Mayhem mysteriously gets injured, and Uncle Chael will have to step into the TUF coaching spot mid-season. He really needs to fight Bisping.
DangadaDang- June 29, 2011 at 10:56 am
Well at least his shit talking will finally have SOME merit behind it.
